Lehrforschungsprojekt Public Management – Public Management Research Project: Beyond the usual suspects - Exploring local digital governance systems in Europe

Dozent: Jakob Kühler

In this educational research project, we will explore jointly the specific characteristics of national digital governance systems. The focus of this research seminar is particularly on the governance of digital transformation at the local government level in European countries that are usually beyond our analytical scope. This may be due to their geographical location, size or perceived political relevance, such as in the case of some Eastern European countries or countries in the European periphery (think of Iceland, for example). We want to take a closer look at the political-administrative system of these countries and examine how, within this system, the local digital transformation is steered, e.g. through digitalisation strategies or partnerships.
